Heaven’s Rocking Chair

Are there rocking chairs in Heaven

where little babies go?

Do the angels hold you closely

and rock you to and fro?

Do they talk silly baby talk

to get a smile or two,

and sing the sleepy lullabies

I used to sing to you?

My heart is aching for you,

my angel child so dear.

You brought such joy into my life

the short time you were here.

I know you’re in a happy place

and in God’s loving care.

I dream each night I’m rocking you

in Heaven’s rocking chair.

Due to the current COVID-19 crisis, we are having to change the way we are running. We would appreciate where possible to do funeral arrangements over the phone. We are aware this is not ideal, neither is it the way we wish to be operating. Understandably due to the COVID-19 crisis, we are adopting these methods to be as compliant as possible with government guidance. This will also apply to the manner in how we are conducting the funerals, we will ensure to do our utmost to remain highly respectful as usual, with as many of our traditions still in place.

For the safety of our staff and yourselves, we are adapting daily to the guidelines set by the government and local authorities.

For any queries or concerns please do contact any of our offices or general enquires on 01252 616431.
